In the morning, we pick up at your hotel in Ulaanbaatar and drive out of the city for two hours to Khustai National Park. We will then make our way to the Khustai Ger Camp, operated by the Khustai Trust, on the northern borderline of the Khustai.  We have lunch at the Khustai Ger Camp.

In the afternoon, we drive to the remarkable Neolithic graves of Öngut, dating from the 6th or 7th century A.D. We will thereafter make our way to the Tuul River and its willows for some birding. Red-footed falcons are relatively easy to see here. In the evening we will take a game drive with a high probability of seeing some of the free roaming herds of Takhi. During the day they usually stay high in the mountains and are rather difficult to see, whereas very early and late in the day they usually come down into the valleys for water and to graze. Overnight in gers.


Today we will trek through the varied habitats of Khustai National Park. Starting out from the ger camp we will hike the ridges with views over the distant Moltsog Sands as well as the partly forested Khustai Mountains. We will trek up a gully to incredible look-out points with a reasonable chance of seeing red deer, black vultures and numerous other raptors such as eagles and falcons. We will reach the back country camp at Moilt, which consists of simple houses. These have recently been somewhat refurbished to provide basic accommodation. The camp is located in an excellent spot next to the core area and is well suited for wildlife viewing on foot in the late evening. Transfer back to camp by vehicle and overnight in gers.

In the evening we return to Ulaanbaatar.

    Traveling through Mongolia’s mountains on horseback was an incredible experience. Very grounding and kind of therapeutic for me. Bataa always made an effort to satisfy everyone’s wishes and helped us understand his county’s traditions. I felt very well taken care of and welcomed by his kindness and humor. I can only recommend traveling with Bataa, he was one of the reasons why that trip was so special.

    It was a dream for me to discover Mongolia on horseback. The experience was even more incredible than I had hoped, and one thing’s for sure, Bataa had a lot to do with it. Thanks to him, we got to know the traditions and people of Mongolia. He was available 24 hours a day to help us communicate with our guides and helped us, explaining what we should and shouldn’t do. He was there for the laughing, the good times but also when we were having a hard time. Perfect guy-de😃 ! I’ll definetely do my next trip with him again !

    Where should I start – I had an an indescribable and amazing experience from the beginning until the end and further.

    I was on a very well-organized nine-day riding tour with a small group of people. Bataa from Taiga Nomadic Travel accompanied our group and did incredible work to provide us with unforgettable experiences (for example feeding eagles, eating traditional Mongolian food, galloping bareback through the Mongolian steppe and heading camels).
    Always helpful and friendly, he enabled communication with the Mongolian horsemen, took us to Gers and introduced us to nomadic families and their way of living. Further, he spontaneously organized an additional three-day stay with a family of Kazakh Eagle Hunters – another once-in-a-lifetime experience.

    Bataa was always available, helping with several issues and did his very best to fulfill all desires. My expectations were more than satisfied and for certain it wasn’t my last tour with Taiga Nomadic Travel.
